become a movement, you can try to change with the government or negotiate with the government. deps on your strategy. start small, focus, build around local nonpolitical issues, which is where you learn the technology of nonviolent struggle. then you achieve a little victory. then the people start joining because the people who join the things which are successful. and if you are branded well and know how to communicate, you have a movement, and then see how the government will deal with it, because the more oppressive government is, the less space for use of the suppression. because they already are using every single way of censorship, and they're, after 30 years, i don't find them very flexible in dealing with the new ways of protesting. the more closed the system, the more oppressive regime, the less flexible. really flexible regimes are not the most -- when you look at the really flexible regimes who learned fast, like the one in venezuela or russia, they're not north koreas them real problem with north korea, once they're there, they're cemented in their own little thing. so w

themes. marco rubio says we don't need to change anything except the candidates. we need to have candidates who better articulate what we've been saying all along. that's going to be the fight in the party. >> i've always asked this question. when you get your butt kicked in an election you really thought -- ann romney is probably an okay person. she thought she was going to win. they really thought, i didn't know who was going to win. i didn't know who was going to win. it was that close. the democrats had a better ground game, obviously. a better social network event. it was close enough to grab. like a football. the receiver is that close. it's in his hands or right there. he should have caught it. it's not the quarterback's fault if that case. here's the question. if they blew it, is their tendency to go hard right with this guy, rand paul, go to paleoconservatism, no more wars. >> that has never won. even when they've gone conservative, when they went to ronald reagan after ford lost, he was not a libertarian. he was sort of a movement, traditional movement conservative who
, as a three-term senator i'm wondering how much have you seen a change in d.c. since you left office? >> well, when i ran for office the first time in 1978, my primary and general election campaigns cost $26 million. jon corzine won in 2000 which was over a decade ago, spent $63 million. >> john: that was just the buffet. >> much of it his own. >> john: i guess citizens united united is assigned the culpability in this. but it seems like it was going on to a great -- >> oh, yeah, citizens united just turbocharged what was the problem. that $318 million i'm talking about from the finance industry didn't come because of citizens united. citizens united is super paced. these are institutions that make contributions through their own pacs and individuals and money and then visit a congressman or senator and talk about an issue. from my standpoint lobbyists are often very helpful. they bring information. you have to break the link between the lobbyist and money. and so let them off of their advice make their arguments but then an hour later, don't go down to the back room of the bar and get $10,00
on the streets-- the gang banging and stuff. it's a belief system. you can change a belief system you can instill hope, re-divert their path, all that. look at me, i been on probation or parole since i was 9 years old. finally got that tail off me. >>you seeing l.a. through my eyes. (man) hey joe? >>what's up? (man) do that remind of something? >>[laughing] hell yeah. barbwire? (man) yeah. tell me what it remind you of. >>the only thing missing is prison guard on a tower with a gun on you. i'm still in the city that damn near killed me, damn near killed my family. there's the bus, check this out. that's the one i'm catching. i get really happy when i walk on the bus and it's kind of crowded but i see a seat to sit on especially on the window side so i can just stick out the window and whether it's traffic or just buildings or trees or whatever-- those are things that i didn't get to see in prison for so long and i appreciate those things. even the very air that i breathe, it's something that's a blessing everyday. i have no complaints because if i did... it'd mean that i don't appreciate freedom.
. >> michael: prebus is now floating several ideas that could change the primary process. his brief moment of clarity was greeted by furious backlash from inside the party. michael steele tore into prebus and said he is the problem not the party or the primary process. >> i won and he didn't. he laid down a ground game national 50-state strategy. we just went out and did the heavy work of rebuilding the party coming off of massive losses in 2006 and 2008. >> michael: joining me now for more is david shuster. welcome back inside "the war room." >> great to be with you always. >> michael: to the gop wants to salvage their image. how are they going to do it with stuff like to? >> right. that's exactly it. it's not the way that they communication, it's what they are communicating. and as long as the republican party has a tea party that has as much control as opposed to the establishment republicans, and others who may want to moderate the par city little bit, you have this convergence of message where you have the tea party that wants to take the country back in terms of
that president obama will be very pragmatic and that scares me. he says president obama is willing to change the formula for how benefits under social security, medicare and other programs are calculated, change cpi in exchange for higher taxes? keep in mind the senator, this senator made a big slash filibustering 13 hours over an issue answered with one sentence f. the big three are threatened by a grand bargain. get your phones out. tonight's question. do you want bernie sanders, the senator, independent from vermont, to filibuster to protect the big three? text a for yes. b for you to 67622. you can go to our blog and we'll bring you the results later in the show. i'm already starting to get the feeling i've got a very unpopular position here that we should protect the big three at all costs because that's what this election was all about. it's about making the wealthiest americans pay more, but to get them to pay more, we have to cut into the middle class and elderly who didn't cause these financial problems. i don't buy it. joining me now is senator bernie sanders of vermont. good to ha
into their 90's and that's a great thing. one thing that hasn't changed -- the official retirement age. the question is how do you make sure you have the money you need to enjoy all of these years? >> additional corporate funding for "washington week" is provided by boeing. additional funding is provided by the annenberg foundation, the corporation for public broadcasting and by contributions to your pbs station from viewers like you. thank you. once again, live from washington, moderator gwen ifill. gwen: good evening. some weeks demand more analysis than others. white house tours were canceled but it wasn't about that. republicans and democrats issued competing budget blueprints but it wasn't about that either. what it seemed to be about as self-definition, a sudden recognition that in the eyes of the american people they've been doing it all wrong, so the president went repeated by to capitol hill. >> over the last several weeks the press here in washington has been reporting about obama's charm offensive. all i've been doing is just calling up folks and trying to see if we can brea
will harm average americans, drive up unemployment, change america permanently in negative ways and on the other hand will be supported by businessmen who will never vote for a republican anyway? as far as i can tell you that republican talk radio and tv shows will vote for it. there's many consequences to amnesty but if amnesty goes through then america will become california and no republican will ever win another election. [applause] richard nixon and ronald reagan will never elect another republican. want see why democrats amnesty why on earth is marco rubio and these bushes pushing for it. they are panicked and demoralized after the last election. stop panicking republicans. liberal writing the obituary of the republican party right now remind me of new homeowners at the height of the housing bubble. people announce their complete triumph moments before their crushing defeat. our job -- our job is to ensure democrats have that crushing defeat. thank you and ill take some questions. [applause] >> go ahead. >> do you believe that chris christie should have been invited to cpa
offensive and who shot the secret video that changed the course of history? good to have you with us tonight. thanks for watching. the 47% video changed the course of the 2012 presidential election. the romney campaign scamabled to address the candid comments, but the proof was on the video. governor romney was not concerned with the middle class in this country or the poor in america. for months, the identity of the person who shot the video remained a mystery. over the next hour, you will hear his story. right now, you will find out just who he is. what is your name and what are you all about? >> my name is scott prowdy. i'm a regular guy, middle class, hard working guy. you know, i think i would like to think i have a good moral compass and a core and i have a little empathy, a little more than mitt romney had. i don't know how i would describe myself, but i was behind this whole thing. i was bar tending that night for the romney fund-raiser. >> let's talk about may 17th. what happened that day? >> we got there, you know, it was a, you know, a political fund-raiser. we did our usual thing
conservative. in a cnn exclusive, senator rob portman explains the personal reasons behind his change of heart. >>> and a bizarre and tragic medical mystery. a man dies after receiving a transplanted kidney tainted with rabies. how could this happen in the united states of america? how many other people are at risk right now? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." forget all those wacky scenes of north korea's leader joking around with dennis rodman. the united states, the obama administration, right now taking the north's threats of a nuclear attack very seriously. the pentagon has just announced it will beef up america's defense missile systems out on the west coast. in california, oregon, washington state. let's go straight to cnn's pentagon correspondent chris lawrence, watching what's going on. chris, a lot of us are stunned by this decision but update us on what is going on. >> wolf, we just came out of a briefing where we learned the pentagon is going to spend a billion dollars to put new intercepter missiles on the west coast. now, that plan includes react investigating a mi
, just his basic themes. marco rubio says we don't need to change anything except the candidates. we need to have candidates who better articulate what we've been saying all along. that's going to be the fight in the party. >> when you get your butt kicked in an election you really thought -- ann romney is probably an okay person. she thought she was going to win. they really thought, i didn't know who was going to win. i didn't know who was going to win. it was that close. the democrats had a better ground game, obviously. a better social network event. it was close enough to grab. like a football. the receiver is that close. it's in his hands or right there. he should have caught it. it's not the quarterback's fault if that case. here's the question. if they blew it, is their tendency it go hard right with this guy, rand paul, go to paleoconservatism, no more wars. >> that has never won. even when they've gone conservative, when they went to ronald reagan after ford lost, he was not a libertarian. he was sort of a movement, traditional movement conservative who had been less conservativ

. then he changed it to paths of prosperity. that's the one he stuck with today. well to paraphrase shakespeare a ryan budget by any other name would still smell unsweet. it would eliminate most of obama-care, it would repeal financial regulation, and it would make major cuts to medicare. sounds great. here he is trying to convince americans that they want this tired 'ol lemon of a plan. >> it's a path to prosperity, a responsible balanced budget. we believe we owe the american people a balanced budget. for the third straight year we've delivered. >> michael: congressman, what you owe the american people is respect. they're smart enough to understand that you introduced the exact same budget during the election and you lost. jay carney today said that the president wants to trim medicare but with a scalpel not an axe. and ryan let slip his real plan for medicare system. >> this to us is something that we're not going to give up on because we're not going to give up on destroying the healthcare system for the american people. >> michael: that was bushan it was so man. was it a freudi

the law having changed there. it puts the federal government in an odd place. states have voted one way. the federal government trying to figure out how to work arounder around that. many have acknowledged that the country is in a serious conversation about marijuana. the president, you remember, went on to--spoke with barbara walters and had this to say. >> do you think that marijuana should be legalized? >> i wouldn't go that far but i think at this point washington and colorado, you've seen the voters speak on this issue. as it is, the federal government has a lot to do when it comes to criminal prosecutions. it does not sense from a prioritization point of view for us to focus on recreational drug users in a state that has already said that under state law that is legal. >> michael: that confusion puts to light by "huffington post" in a poll they have there that say 51% of adults should be exempt from federal drug laws, and 30% say those laws should be enforced in colorado. it becomes for the justice department an issue how if the state says one thing the federal department should d
're trying to do. but governor bush seemed to change his stance somewhat during a series of recent interviews prompting tough criticism from senate majority leader harry reid. >> let's wait for a few minutes and see how jeb bush changes his mind again. his opinion on immigration is not evolving. it's devolving. he keeps going backwards. i think he's frankly made a fool of himself the last 24 hours. frankly, on this issue, i don't think jeb bush is a florida leader. i think marco rubio is. bush has been elected to nothing lately. rubio is the leader on immigration. >> okay. joe, a new poll by latino decisions shows immigration reform is by far the most important issue for hispanic voters. that's by the economy and jobs, education and health care. >> john heilemann, let's talk, john heilemann, about your next book. bush -- "game change 2016." i think this may have to be the opening scene of jeb getting out of a cab in the middle of the dark, you know, in a cold march morning and walking into the "today" show when announcing that he's changed his mind. i mean, the second i heard it, i said, the

change. why? well, given the demand for oil in the united states, canada's producers will still get alberta's oil to the refineries in the gulf of mexico. there are other pipeline possibilities, but the most likely method is by train. the report estimates that it would take daily runs of 15 trains with about 100 tanker cars each to carry the amount planned by transcanada, the company. that's a large increase but one likely to be met. the increases in oil transported by rail in the united states are already staggering. car loads of crude oil on trains doubled between 2010 and 2011, then they tripled between 2011 and 2012. and, remember, research shows that moving oil by train produces much higher emissions of carbon dioxide than were the oil to float through a pipeline. canada could also transport the oil to asia. having visited alberta recently, i can a test that canadian officials and business men are planning to are an asian market. they're regarding american policy as politicized and hostile. if we don't use the oil from alberta, we need to get the oil from somewhere else, venezu

's identity crisis is now personified by senator rob portman's change of heart on same-sex marriage. >> wow, what a crowd. >> reporter: on mitt romney's short list for vice president rob portman voted against same-sex marriage in the house and senate. he said it was a matter of faith. now it's a matter of family. after his 21-year-old son will, a junior at yale, came out to his parents two years ago. >> i think this is something we should allow people to do -- to get married and have the joy and stability of marriage that i have had for over 26 years. i want all three of my kids to have it including our son who is gay. >> reporter: will portman on a kayaking trip with his father and older brother tweeted, especially proud of my dad today. portman joins former vice president cheney who backed his daughter mary and her spouse. and 130 prominent republicans who signed a brief supporting the supreme court challenge to california's proposition 8 which bans same-sex marriage. but while a majority of americans, 51%, for the first time support same-sex marriage in a nbc news/wall street journal pol
